This positive music which awakes the hearts and which gives desire for dancing and to feast is closely related to the dance; without the dance, it would in any case not exist, not this way there. The Zangora group can make live and make known this typical music of the Balkan countries which links the division, the freedom and the expression of a jazz to the colors, with phrased and with the virtuosity of the gypsy music heritage.
The Zangora group endeavours to play and popularize this merry and festive music in the purest tradition...
The musical tradition one finds it in the repertory, primarily of Bulgaria, of Romania, of Yugoslavia, of Albania, etc...
Each music corresponds to styles of local popular dances, dances that all the mode knows, of the binary rates/rhythms, of the Balkan rumbas, all the dances on odd rates/rhythms...
